TO THE HONOURABLE

CHARLES BANKS STANHOPE,

*

AND TO THE HONOURABLE

JAMES HAMILTON STANHOPE.

GENTLEMEN,

I AM desirous of prefixing your names to. these volumes in token of the affectionate attachment to which, from me, you are peculiarly entitled. And I am happy in the opportunity which this publication affords me of bringing to your recollection subjects, in the stady of which you successfully engaged at a very early period of life, and which are of acknowledged importance in the pursuits of every well-educated youth.

* This young man, the second son of the present Earl Stanhope, chose at an early period the profession of arms. In the year 1807, he was appointed aid-de-camp to general Moore, whom he accompanied to Sicily and Sweden. In the latter end of the year 1808, he was, as major, appointed to the command of the 50th regiment, then in Spain, at the head of which he was shot through the heart, at Corunna, on the 16th of January, 1809.
